Campus: Manhattan Major: Behavioral Sciences, B.S., concentration in sociology/social work
Lakisha Scott is vice president of finance for the 2014-2015 Executive Board of the Student Government Association at NYIT-Manhattan. She is also a merit scholarship awardee and member of the Arthur O. Eve Higher Education Opportunity Program (HEOP) at NYIT-Manhattan.
I chose to study behavioral sciences, because I think there are many people who need and want help, and they do not know where or who to turn to.
HEOP has been helpful to students both in and outside of the program. On campus, I am very active, and I thank HEOP for such opportunities.
Activities and Organizations
Inductee of the Phi Eta Sigma National Honor Society, first-year experience mentor and orientation leader, Academic Enrichment Center peer advisor, and HEOP peer mentor.
Advice to Students
I love meeting new people. NYIT has become my home away from home, and it can be the same for other students, too. I encourage all to get involved and learn about the resources NYIT has to offer.
